Exeter's first Living Without Cruelty Festival aims to spread across Exeter a message of non-violence to animals, people and the environment and to promote some of the enterprises within the city that are working - in many different ways - towards these goals.

As well as the Living Without Cruelty fayre, there will be films, a rock concert, fantastic veggie food nights and special promotions. It's a very varied programme with, we hope, something for everyone interested in a more compassionate future.

ENQUIRIES: Telephone 01404 831763. Read on for a full programme of events:

Most goods, services, information and entertainment now flow from huge multinationals. The Corporation explores this disturbing phenomenon and its consequences with a mix of wit, opinion and hard facts. This highly acclaimed film will keep you engaged both visually and intellectually. It is by turns informative, amusing and thought provoking.
